Dynamo: wires were just for 'health and safety'

Illusionist Dynamo has defended his levitation stunt at the Shard, after photos emerged clearly showing wires holding him up.

He told The Sun newspaper: “That was a rehearsal and we used those wires for health and safety,” he told The Sun. “It's a shame a picture went out, but that's the world we live in." He added: “The stunt we filmed for the show will give people something to think about when they see the full effect.”
